Every week we make a meal plan for the week ahead. The plan accounts for 5 breakfasts, 4 lunches (plus fruit), 4 snacks, and 5 dinners each for the two of us. Lunches are typically a double batch of whatever the recipe calls for. We make the lunches and do other prep work on Sunday. Nearly all items are purchased from either our local farmers market or Whole Foods. We live in Cincinnati, OH.
May 10-May 16
My parents are in town and Josh is in and out of town this week, leading to countless meals out and a Mother’s Day feast at home.
Cincinnati has become absolutely gorgeous in this weather and we’re loving every minute of it after that brutal winter. A Yankee I am not, and the cold isn’t being missed in the slightest. We’ve been taking countless walks and sitting out on porches and patios as often as we can. Our neighborhood farmers market opens this coming Sunday, and we’re excited to see how good it is. I’m sure as many strawberries will be purchased as possible.
